   Did you know variants have a greater or lesser chance of survival in changing conditions? Cooler climates with increased snow may mean a lighter colored  phased animal will survive and pass along his genes to the next generation. With less snow a darker phase may have a better chance of survival. 

   In some cases a more visible variant may have a better chance of survival/replacing the more drab variants because it may be seen and breed more readily and spread its genes quicker and over a wider area. 

   I could say this is the case in humans but the last time I mentioned such I heard I made the ladies here on the FF mad at me and we sure don't want that or I may become the next extinct species. :D

   Blue and Orange may be the colors required to attract WV catfish and prevent starvation and vitamin deficiency. I think I'm going to have me a mess of fried catfish fillets and yellow grits for supper. digin1 Its way better eating than a boiled bulldog. ;)

Boiled puppy was served by Native Americans as a special treat for important visitors.  Boiled eagle must have been tough, stringy, and unpalatable, although I may try some next Fall.

   I remember Justin Houston used to tell the joke about seeing a little boy walking down the road with a hawk over his shoulder and asked him what he was going to do with him. He said he was going to cook and eat him. Justin was a cook so he asked him "What does a hawk taste like?" He said the little boy replied "Oh, its about like owl."

  Did you know that many songbirds stake out a territory and fly from boundary point to boundary point singing to warn other songbirds of the same species to stay away? Ok, we covered that in an earlier thread but did you know the mockingbird does pretty much the same thing only it repeats or "mocks" the songs of other species of birds so, in effect, he is warning multiple species of birds to stay clear of the area?

  Did you know the Anole is the south's answer to a chameleon? They are a slender lizard typically 6-8 inches long from the tip of their nose to the very tip of their tail. They change colors back and forth from green to brown/olive based on the background they are on.

  You typically see them on screen doors and screened-in porches catching bugs trying to invade the house. They are also found in most vegetation/landscaping and love azaleas and such planted near homes.

  Another defense mechanism they have is their tail readily breaks off when a predator, typically a playful housecat, slaps their paw on the tail. They then grow a new tail. It was not uncommon to find a forked tailed Anole where his tail broke partway and a new one started growing at the break.

  Males have a large red "dewlap" under their chin that they will display to attract a mate or challenge another male in their territory. As kids we always called this "showing his money" as it was about the size of a typical coin when fully extended. I think @Magicman had posted a video (Along with his pornographic box turtle video) of two Anoles fighting which was pretty impressive. (Lynn - if you can find that lizard fighting video can you please re-post it here).

  If you have Anoles in your area, and some pet stores even sell them, you can catch them by setting out baited "traps" of thread, string or fishing line tied to a fly and a limb or nail in the areas the Anoles frequent. They will grab the bug and not turn loose and you can check your trapline and catch them similar to putting out catfish lines.

  Anoles make a great pet for kids to play with. They will sometimes open their mouth and bite but cannot hurt a kid. When they were little my son caught a pair and hung them on his little sister's ears as earrings and she was properly traumatized but survived the ordeal with no permanent injuries.

It wasn't a video but here is the topic:  LINK

The amazing thing was how they could increase their apparent size by swelling their bellies, puffing up, and raising the skin up on their backs.  After the winner was decided both of them returned to their normal slender size.

   Thanks Lynn. Great shots. They sure look vicious for a couple of 6" lizards don't they. :D I guess it is too cold for them here in WV but I sure enjoyed them as a kid. As mentioned, they were great pets for us when we were kids in N. Fla.

   I had always heard if you or your pet got sprayed by a skunk to use tomato juice and one friend used to say he used diesel. Did you know the below is a suggestion to remove skunk smell?

Chemist Paul Krebaum discovered a solution that changes the odorous thiols into odorless acids, thereby chemically neutralizing the skunk odor. The formula is: 1 quart of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide (fresh bottle), cup of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), and 1-2 teaspoons of liquid dish soap.

  I suspect this works better than tomato juice but hope I don't have to try it any time soon.

EDIT: Here is a link I meant to post too.

This is the only effective way to get rid of skunk stink

  I am somewhat reluctant to post this but since it is public knowledge in some circles and I know it will not be abused here, did you know that crushed walnut, and I understand hickory, nuts and leaves  were used to catch fish? Crush up the nuts and leaves in a burlap sack, weight it down and toss it in a deep hole in a creek and stand by to dip up the fish as they float to the surface or come to the surface struggling to breathe. (Hey - its much safer and less destructive than dynamite or a hand grenade. :D)

   Did you know that a whitetail deer can smell a worm in an acorn? At Auburn they had some deer in a pen as part of their wildlife program and they collected a bunch of acorns and fed them to the deer. When the deer finished eating the researchers went back and inspected the rejected acorns and found a worm in each one. The deer sniffed through them and ate the good acorns and rejected the wormy ones.

So did the deer "smell the worm" or smell and could tell that the nutmeat was bad? Inquiring minds want to know. I know that it is amazing how many birds and animals can very quickly determine if a nut, seed or whatever is any good. Squirrels with nuts and many birds quickly reject wormy sunflower seeds and such. One time my wife and I went fishing in the St. Lawrence River and caught some round gobies. They are an invasive introduced  species so we didn't want to put them back, even though, in the grand scheme of things, it wouldn't make any difference. So I tossed them on the ground, thinking that the numerous Ring-billed Gulls flying around would scarf them up. The gulls only showed a mild interest in the gobies and would not eat them. I later learned that eating raw gobies can  give the birds botulism. Ring-billed Gulls and Round Gobies are Old World Species so the gulls have it engrained in their genes to not eat gobies.
